“After years of research, Edouatd Taufenbach was able to work with an exceptional collection of anonymous images that director Sébastien Lifshitz has been gathering over several decades… By selecting with obsessive care, coherent corpuses of rare snapshots of leisure, pleasure and desire; he multiplied these silver on gelatin plates to be then fragmented and manually rearranged, sometimes using different scales, in a composition stemming from a rule of mathematical nature [that refers both to digital and the beginning of the cinema]. The latter is specific to each one of the original images which, in a way, impose it. It points to, highlights and amplifies a formal or narrative aspect. The curves of a body here, a gesture there… Conversely it also allows the complete reinterpretation of the image, the invention of a new one: Who would suspect that this bouquet of feminine silhouettes comes from a horizontal image featuring a rather sensible farandole of bathers? In any case Édouard Taufenbach has worked with an open jubilation. —I inject cinema, time and rhythm to my images. The viewer is the one who operates the fi lm strip— he says”. Étienne Hatt, Curator

Spéculaire (Especular)

"Tras años de investigación para esta serie Taufenbach accedió al archivo del cineasta Sébastien Lifshitz, con imágenes anónimas excepcionales reunidas durante décadas. Después de seleccionar meticulosamente cuerpos coherentes de raros retratos instantáneos de ocio, placer y deseo; el artista multiplicó placas de plata sobre gelatina para luego fragmentarlas y reorganizarlas manualmente —a veces usando diferentes escalas— en collages que parecen derivados de una regla de naturaleza matemática [que refieren tanto a lo digital como a los inicios del cine].
Lo póstumo es tautológico a cada una de las imágenes originales que, en cierto modo, la impostan. Así el artista señala, destaca y amplifica sus aspectos formales o narrativo. Las curvas de un cuerpo aquí, un gesto allá ... Curiosamente, también permiten la re-interpretación completa de la imagen, con la invención de una nueva: ¿Quién sospecharía que este bouquet de siluetas femeninas, proviene de una imagen horizontal que presenta un popurrí de recatadas bañistas? En cualquier caso, Édouard Taufenbach ha trabajado con un descarado júbilo.
—Inyecto cine, tiempo y ritmo a mis imágenes. El espectador es quien opera la cinta de la película— menciona”. Étienne Hatt, curadora.
